A winery without a past is like a wine without character. At J. Bouchon, above all else, we believe in tradition and quality. Our history goes a long way back - to 1892 - when Emile Bouchon, a native from Bordeaux (France) arrived in Chile and settled down in the Maule Valley, south of Santiago. Julio Bouchon S., the current president and owner, is an Agronomist that graduated at the University of Chile and holds an Enologist degree from the University of Bordeaux. – Description from milana

  • Viñedos Bouchon J. Sauvignon Blanc Maule Valley las Mercedes 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Woody with bacon fat aromas over some green fruit, with a hint of nettle on the nose. This is bright in the mouth with some dissolved CO2 adding a touch of detail to the nicely smooth feel. Round and lush with a bit of apple and melon fruit. This shows a touch of wood tannin on the back end. Short, clean and fresh if not sapid. 85pts Read More

  • J. Bouchon Carménère Valle del Maule Reserva Especial 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Dark fruit, lots of cocoa, a bit feral, earthy, nice herbal spice but no green to speak of. Sweetness from oak, vanilla. A bit sweet on entry with a big carob note followed by a touch of herb, beefy flavors, caramel. This is big and a bit lazy. 85pts Read More

  • J. Bouchon Merlot Valle del Maule 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Tonight I am enjoying a bottle of 2006 J. Bouchon Merlot from Chile. Now the merits of Merlot aside, you have to admit that in the last few years Chile has been producing some remarkably wonderful, yet inexpensive wines for us to enjoy, and I think this is one of them.This wine has a deep ruby color, with a nose of licorice, spice and ripe berr...

  • Vinedos J. Bouchon Varietals Sauvignon Blanc 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Strong citrus notes on the nose and palate with a lasting tartness. Compliments mildly flavoured foods. Perhaps too acidic for some. Decent wine with the right pairing. Read More

  • J. Bouchon Carménère Reserva Chicureo 2005

    Snoothrank:

    The color shows the early stages of evolution, with a slightly orange fringe. The background is a frank carmine.The nose is not so sweet compared to Carmenère syrupy. Instead of pepper on the vigor that one would expect from a Cabernet. Not unpleasant (blackcurrant, more leaf than fruit, red currant).On the palate, slightly tannic attack (softer... Read More
